    We had a hankerin for a french dip, so I ran to the store and picked up an over-priced tri-tip.


    Liberally applied garlic salt & pepper, and some MH


    Put a 5 min sear on each side on the gas grill


    Nice texture on the outside, and nice and rare on the inside, sliced as thing as I could


    A quarter cup of beef broth, and a few TBS of Dales Steak seasoning in a sautee pan with the meat


    After a couple mins, and a flip of the meat


    Laid some provolone over a portion of it, and steamed it down in the pan. Then scooped a generous portion onto a buttered hogie roll


    Baked up some steak frys and made some au jus out of a packet to go along side


    We weren't able to finish it, so the following night we cut up the strips and my wife fried up some corn tortillas


    Tri Tip Tacos with some shredded cheese, lettuce, and el pato (yellow can)

    That looks awesome, I bought a case of Tri-tip and I pulled one out of the freezer this morning, I was going to grill it, but you have changed my mind, it's French Dips tonight, thanks for the Q-view.

    Really? I love Dales (in small doses, since a little bit goes a long way)
